Welcome to my personal recipe share page. All the recipes found here are all tried and true. Some have been shared by friends and some are old family recipes. Others I've found on cooking sites, web pages and in cook books. All have been tweaked to my families liking. Please note that I don't create my own recipes and I'm not taking credit for others recipes. I'm simply sharing what has worked for us and sharing our favorites. Since I know how much I enjoy new and exciting recipes, I thought I would share them with the world! I get tired of making the same dish time and time again. It's true that while something is worthy of being enjoyed frequently, the same rotation gets old fast. The recipes you will find here, for the most part, are simple to create with easy to come by ingredients. While there may be the recipe that requires a little more effort, I can assure you that it will be worth it. There will also be plenty of crock pot creations for you to choose from. I hope that you find something here that appeals to you and that you will share your favorites with me. Enjoy and Bon Appetite!

Low Carb Deep Dish Pizza

(This was FANTASTIC. My BFF and her guy gave this to me. I loved it. Kaytie thought it was yummy too. The boys, not so much. I think they knew it wasn’t actually crust and that turned them off from the beginning. I guess it’s a good thing I made “regular” pizza for them. I will be making this again, even if only for myself. This had a wonderful cheesy taste. I think it would be awesome cut into “bread” sticks and dipped in sauce also.)
4 oz cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
¼ cup shredded parmesan cheese
¼ tsp oregano or Italian seasoning
¼ tsp garlic powder
8 oz Italian cheese blend or mozzarella, shredded

How to prepare:
In a medium bowl, whisk cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Whisk in eggs until mixture is well blended and smooth. Add the parmesan and seasonings, then stir in 8 ox of Italian or mozzarella cheese until moistened. Spread cheese mixture evenly in a well greased 9x13 glass baking dish. Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes or until evenly browned, but not too dark. Let cool completely. When nearly cooled, use a metal spatula to pry up the edges from the pan. Ease spatula under the whole crust to loosen. Leave crust in the pan, refrigerate uncovered until serving time.

Spread chilled crust with pizza sauce, cheese and toppings. Sprinkle lightly with garlic and oregano. Bake at 375 for 15 to 20 mins.

***Important Note: You want to make this early and refrigerate for a couple hours to allow the crust to dry out a bit for easy handling when eating. Also, if you make this in a metal pan, it will stick. One recommendation is to lightly grease the pan and line it with parchment paper.
